After only one Cinema outing last month, December saw three visits and all of them were enjoyed, something which was a little bit surprising.
|Ghostbusters: Afterlife (2021)|
I rocked upto this one quite expecting to hate it or at best be incredibly bored. Surprisingly, I enjoyed it. Paul Rudd and the geeky looking one from Stranger Things star, as well as a cameo from the original Ghostbuters. A good time was had.
When a single mother and her two children move to a new town, they soon discover they have a connection to the original Ghostbusters and the secret legacy their grandfather left behind.
Based on real life events (with a bit of artistic licence no doubt). Events which happened just long enough ago in the past that they had almost faded from memory. a really interesting, really gripping watch. That Lady Gaga can act as well as she sings. Which IMO is very well indeed.
Got to say when the mood grabs me I do like a musical. I particularly like one where I know at least half the songs and I knew them with this one. I would be hard pushed to remember the original film, but I remember it enough to know it's a conflict between the Jets and the Sharks, with a bit of a Romeo and Juliet thrown in.
When Patrizia Reggiani, an outsider from humble beginnings, marries into the Gucci family, her unbridled ambition begins to unravel the family legacy and triggers a reckless spiral of betrayal, decadence, revenge -- and ultimately murder.
|West Side Story (2021)|
Love at first sight strikes when young Tony spots Maria at a high school dance in 1957 New York City. Their burgeoning romance helps to fuel the fire between the warring Jets and Sharks -- two rival gangs vying for control of the streets.
